please explain.. I thought the AU Falcon was "UN-STEAL-ABLE"

How can they bypass smartsheild?

I know it can be done on the EFL/EL quite easily..

Just like the VT Commodore is supposed to be unstealable.

One of the guys on LS1 had his R8 deadlocked and still came back to find it missing Wheels and interior.

Please explain this deadlock function?

Unless the AU falcon stealing figures are from people actually removing the vehicles by other means than driving them away??

deadlock disables the internal door handles so once you get inside be smashing a window say you still aren't meant to be able to open the door.

Well i actually done a test in my car, i locked my self inside the car with the remote, and pulled the inside door handle to get out, and guess what the whole car unlockefd it self. I guess with any car theres no need to make a deadlock as you ca get in someway, but the imobiliser is the one that counts, as they can't start it or hot wire the thing.

What if you enable the child locks on the rear doors that way the car is half deadlocked...

With the R8, I remember reading on LS1 that HSV replaced everything that was stolen. Was it a faulty deadlock on his car or did they find a way around it?
